BLACK ROCK is a horror film about three women who travel to a remote island they had visited as children. When the women meet three hunters, their weekend break turns into a fight for survival.

Violence

There are several scenes of strong violence, including a man being hit on the head with a rock, a woman being shot in the head, a woman being stabbed in the stomach with a stick, and a man having his throat cut with a knife. In one scene a bone is seen sticking through the skin on a man's broken leg. However, many of the moments of violence take place at night and the low lighting obscures both wound detail and strong detail of the infliction of injury. Blood sprays are visible from exit wounds and blood patches are seen on clothes and skin.

Threat

One sequence contains some sexual threat as a man tries to force himself on a woman after she has changed her mind about kissing him. Both characters remain fully clothed throughout as the man fiddles with his trousers below the edge of the frame and tries to pin the woman to the floor. The sexual threat does not escalate into actual sexual violence. There are further scenes of threat as the women are chased around the island by the men and threatened with guns and knives.

Language

There is frequent use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker') and a single use of very strong language ('c**t'). The single use of very strong language occurs when a character realises that his friend has been murdered and he shouts at the perpetrator.

Some scenes contain natural full frontal female nudity as two women remove their water-logged clothes and huddle together for warmth. The film also contains some moderate sex references as characters discuss oral sex.
